Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    QUICK NEWS, May 18: CALIF’S EMISSIONS CUTS HIT WORLD CHARTS; NEXT WIND; SOLAR ROAD PRODUCES

    CALIF’S EMISSIONS CUTS HIT WORLD CHARTS California Green Innovation Index goes global: Golden State ranks top among countries worldwide

    May 18, 2015 (Next 10)

    “In advance of the historic United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris this year, the California Green Innovation Index, for the first time, analyzes and ranks the Golden State’s economic and energy performance in comparison to the world’s 50 largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting nations…[California ranks] among top ten nations worldwide in total renewable energy generation, share of electricity from renewable sources, highest energy productivity and lowest carbon intensity (emissions per GDP)…For every dollar of goods and services, California emits less carbon than any nation except France…[and is] #5 in the world in energy productivity (GDP relative to total energy consumption)…” click here for more

    NEXT WIND The Future of Wind Turbines? No Blades

    Liz Stinson, May 15, 2015 (Wired)

    “…Vortex Bladeless is proposing a radical new way to generate wind energy that will once again upend what you see…Their idea is the Vortex, a bladeless wind turbine that looks like a giant rolled joint shooting into the sky…Instead of capturing energy via the circular motion of a propeller, the Vortex takes advantage of what’s known as vorticity, an aerodynamic effect that produces a pattern of spinning vortices…[that shake structures enough to] cause their eventual collapse…The Vortex’s shape was developed computationally to ensure the spinning wind (vortices) occurs synchronously along the entirety of the mast…At the base of the cone are two rings of repelling magnets…When the cone oscillates one way, the repelling magnets pull it in the other direction…This kinetic energy is then converted into electricity [silently and with no moving parts]…” click here for more

    SOLAR ROAD PRODUCES Solar power road surface actually works; A Dutch solar power-generating road is making more electricity than expected.

    Patrick Nelson, May 18, 2015 (Network World)

    “…[T]hat road surface being tested in the Netherlands that act[s] as a giant solar panel converting solar energy into electricity…actually worked…Six months into the test, the engineers say they've generated 3,000kwH of power from the 70-meter bike path test track. That's enough power to run a one-person household for a year, and more than expected of the project, according to SolaRoad, the company behind the experiment…SolaRoad's road surface acts as a huge photovoltaic panel. Practical applications thought of thus far include street lighting, traffic systems, and electric vehicles…Designers are keen on the idea of developing a system where electricity could be passed onto vehicles as they drive down the road…” click here for more
